This seems to be closer to what I'm advocating.

We are prototyping now, but the web developers cannot access our prototypes yet. Third-party integration means two things:

1) Chrome provides a way for any app to say "I am a payment app". This includes both native apps and websites.
2) A developer of a payment app modifies their App to hook into Chrome.

Website-based payment apps are being discussed in this WG now. I'd like to define Android native payment app API as well. I expect it to be intent-based. That way an browser on Android can talk to any Android native payment app via the package manager. Stay tuned for updates.

The reason for the stretched out time-line is mostly due to engineering and planning. Testing, integration, productionizing, UI polish---all of that takes time.

    In the video at 26:20 there is a slide saying that third-party application
    integration is slated for "Early 2017".  Does this mean that you cannot even
    prototype now, although there's a beta browser supporting the current
    Web Payment API?  I don't really understand what you mean with third-party
    integration either, what exactly is required from Google's side?
